Canon 40d self timer

I can't get my self timer to work per the instructions in the users manual. Can't ever see the 2 or 10 sec icon in the LCD screen.  Any suggestions?

    When I press the 'AF DRIVE' button, the LCD screen on the 40D goes blank, and no options present themselves. I can't take self-timer pictures at this point. Suggestions?

    I have the same problem, as the original poster...it is not the LCD screen on the back, but, indeed, the panel at the top, it either goes blank, or will not show the timer icon in the lower left hand corner, no matter which way the Quick Control Dial is turned. Neither will it allow me to select the Drive mode.

The self timer icon should show up on the LCD panel, on top of the camera on the right side.

I have a Canon 40D. When I press the shutter button, it has about a 5 second delay before taking the photo, on all modes. Help!!


You may have set the self timer, which is ordinarily used when you want to get into the picture yourself.

POLAROID PDC 3077 looking for the user manual instructions to take a picture with the timer setting


There should be a button with a clock icon. Press it and you should be presented with choices for how many seconds you want before the pic is taken. Make your choice and press the shutter button...get in the picture.

Want to shoot a timed pictures ie, a pic of myself and my sister together and me setting the camera on a timer and getting into the pic...what do I do? Don't have manual with me. I have a Canon EOS 40D


Did you know there are two firmware updates available for your camera? For a timer picture, here are the instructions: 1Press the <o> button. (
9)
2Select either <j> or <l>.
Look at the LCD panel and turn the
<5> dial to select <j> or <l>.
j:10-sec. self-timer
l:2-sec. self-timerN
3Take the picture.
Focus the subject and press the
shutter button completely.
The picture will be taken after the
self-timer delay elapses.
You can check the self-timer
operation with the self-timer lamp,
beeper, and countdown display (in
seconds) on the LCD panel.
Two seconds before the picture is
taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on
and the beeper will sound faster.
Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to
start the self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus.

Canon 5D and canon 40D are they type A or type B cameras as per 380 EX manual


Hi Bruce,
You have the latest cameras and they will work with ETTL II with Canon 430EX/550EX/580EX and 580EX II. Earlier models use ETTL and films use TTL.
Hope they are helpful.

Self timer


1. Press the Func/Set button
2. On the left side of the LCD, scroll down to Drive Mode icon (usually a square, third item down)
3. Use right arrow key to select clockface with 2 (2 sec delay) or 10 (10 sec delay)
4. Press the Func/Set button

Now whenever you press the shutter button, the camera will delay 2 or 10 seconds before a picture is taken. Use the same steps to go back to normal (square icon) drive mode.
